AIR+ Smart Masks for Vulnerable Elderly
Temasek Foundation Cares and ST Engineering gave out AIR+ Smart Masks and Micro Ventilators to vulnerable elderly to protect them from harmful effects of severe haze.
This programme is part of the Temasek Foundation Cares ‘Stay Prepared’ initiative to enhance the resilience of the Singapore community to cope with the emergencies.
29,000 elderly aged 60 years and above, and staying in an HDB rental flat were eligible to receive these masks.
Each elderly received a set of 3 AIR+ Smart Masks from the Senior Activity Centre in his/her area.
The elderly can also loan an AIR+ Micro Ventilator from the Senior Activity Centre when needed.
